Teaching Tips:

  • Curriculum in early childhood education often focuses on learning the colors. Offer a variety of white items mixed up with colored items. Ask your child to pick up one item at a time. If it is white, sign white and place it in one pile. If it is not white, they can sign no and place it in the other pile.
  • Read books about colors together (there are so many to choose from!), and sign the colors you know, including white. You can look up many other colors here in our dictionary too.

White. Pretend you’re pulling the white ruffles on your shirt. Show me white. That was great! White.
